“I’ve always loved fashion and dressing up ever since a young age. I became fascinated by the industry and the buying aspect. I chose JCI specifically for the hands-on class material and heavy emphasis on visual display.”
Sarah enrolled at JCI in January 2016 and was given the opportunity to intern with the visual team at Anthropologie.
“My visual display teacher at JCI, Danielle, used to work at Anthropologie and really believed in me and my passion for visual display. She pushed me in the right direction. If it wasn’t for her I don’t think I’d be where I am right now.”
After graduating JCI in November 2016, Sarah worked as a Product Stylist and a Social Media Coordinator, until she landed her dream job.
“My goal job after graduation was Anthropologie’s display artist position and as of now, I’m enjoying my accomplishment!”
Sarah was approached by Anthropologie for the display artist position which she landed recently. This has been her prized moment throughout her career so far.
“JCI took real-life scenarios and turned them into hands-on projects for us to problem solve and make our own.”
“Stay focused, work hard, be eager and push yourself! Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!”
